I wouldn't take Benadryl with Seroquel. I have been diagnosed with ptsd and bipolar, and insomnia, when I took the X-ray 200 pill of Seroquel, I slept for almost a day and a half and if was the first time that I ever took the pill. I woke up and ate some food and went back to sleep. It's strong enough cause out if 24 hrs in a day I normally get 4 hours of sleep but since I took the Seroquel I slept all damn day which ain't a good thing but just take half a pill if u feel like your sleeping to long because I had to. But don't take Benadryl with it cause you might not wake up , lol
Hi, this is what the interactions checker says: "Using clonazePAM (Klonopin) together with diphenhydrAMINE (Benadryl) may increase side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, and difficulty concentrating. Some people, especially the elderly, may also experience impairment in thinking, judgment, and motor coordination. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with these medications. Also avoid activities requiring mental alertness such as driving or operating hazardous machinery until you know how the medications affect you."
